lyrics

The sun bleeds red in a fading sky
I watch it sink as my work burns dry
Painted now on a thousand tiers
The history of a thousand years

The eye of Horus is gazing down
On the final piece, a golden crown
To cap the spire point high
To the stars gleaming in the sky

Now, my work is done
The world will know
That I was here
My crowning glory
Will tell my story
Year after year

I have been blessed by the gods my fathers
Given a vision a task and dream
Since I was born, ruling with such power
I know that I‘ll live eternally.

So here I’ve made a new mountain rise up
Reaching the gods in the heavens high
The pure golden crown of my great achievement
Destined to stand to the end of time

Now, my work is done
The world will know
That I was here
My crowning glory
Will tell my story
Year after year

Bright golden point meant to crown a tomb
Missing for over five thousand years
Stole and melted it was assumed
I tracked you down and at last you're here

Look at the shine, after years of hunting
Searching for clues, now I've proved I'm right
Bring in the cameras and lift it slowly
My name will circle the globe this night

Now, my work is done
The world will know
That I was here
My crowning glory
Will tell my story
Year after year

Now, my work is done
The world will know
That I was here
My crowning glory
Will tell my story
Year after year
Year after year
Year after year
Year after year...
